While the 54th World Series of Poker is geared to start this May 30th, it’s not until July 3rd before the Main Event festivities actually kick off. That means, players looking to drop $10,000 on the premium event still have over three months to lock in a seat for cheap. In partnership with the global brand, Natural8 – GGNet is set to award at least 500 packages valued at $12,000 each. This includes not only the tournament buy-in but also travel expenses, hotel rooms, Natural8 merchandise, and access to the exclusive GG platinum lounge.

A plethora of direct satellites posting various buy-ins ranging from $600 to $1,200 are now running in part of the site’s Road to Vegas promotion. Highlighting the selection is the site’s $1,175 Main Event Mania where at least 20 packages are guaranteed to be awarded. Feeder satellites for a fraction of the entry fees are also available for those looking to score a package for a much lower cost. 

Moreover, those fortunate enough to claim a package can use their ticket to qualify for the additional $1,000,000 bonus prize should they emerge as the 2023 WSOP Main Event champion while those unable to go, are welcome to convert their package into T$10,500.

Momentum keeps on going for relatively newcomer WPT Global as it continues to improve overall gameplay for its emerging set of clientele. Just this March, the 5th ranking site in online poker traffic as reported by Pokerscout, launched its newest multi-tabling feature to the delight of many recreational players. 

The latest improvement sees a maximum of seven tables for Windows users and a lesser cap of four tables for macOS users, while only two cash game tables can be running simultaneously for all. Development in software remains to be in the works as the multi-tabling feature brings in nonstop action and added volume for both its regular and casual players.

Online poker giant PokerStars is celebrating its 17th anniversary with another bang coming this March 26 with the start of its $7,500,000 guaranteed Sunday Million festivities. The anticipated event posts an entry fee of yet again $215 for a chance of a million dollar score for the champion. Luckily, interested runners can take the time to grind the site’s affordable satellites running round the clock with three days left before the event begins.

Winning the top network’s flagship tournament is no easy feat considering last year’s games collected a whopping 52,119-entry field. 2022 champion “Blackbeaty” banked an incredible $931,885 payday after a heads up was made with Denmark’sJanRas1983” who also walked away with a massive score of $817,235. While Germany’sBlackbeaty” only fired two bullets to the trophy, it was “JanRas1983” who managed to satellite his way from $11 to a life-changing six-figure score.
